Not one of my favorites, but I watch it anyhow. ;)

the foreshadowing in this one won me over.

The fact that the planet of Ikarra had been dead for 1000 years ( the last shadow war ), and the technology was created to stop an invasion ( but does not tell you by whom - they could just have been in league with the shadows - but it is left for the viewer to figure it out ).

:D

I enjoyed the foreshadowing too. Also, from watching the DVD's over and over,(can't help myself) I noticed that the actor who played the Narn T'lon was also the research assistant. I get a kick out of seeing how JMS uses the same actor for multiple characters.

Anthor piece of foreshadowing is the Icarns were trying to create a pure Icarn .Later in season 4 when Delenn goes home to sanctify her coming marriage to Sheridan Callenn uses the same line of keeping minbar pure.

As I'm re-watching the series with my sister, I'm surprised by how many times I reference this episode when reminding her of foreshadowing: organic tech, "1000 yrs ago," IPX, etc.

Cell aren't you too hard on "Infection".I know that it's not the best that B5 can offer, but an F?

No I don't think it was tough, it is one of the worst if not THE worst B5 episode in my opinion. Besides the ending that states why space exploration is important, the episode is generic Star Trek fare. I guess I missed this foreshadowing that people are referring to, but I had no inkling that this was foreshadowing the Shadows in any way shape or form.

In this episode we hear for the first time about IPX, which is a very important organization later in the series(Catherine Sakai; Anna Sheridan;the doctor from "Messages From Earth";"Thirdspace").We also find out that the Vorlons probably have organic technology.

I don't think that it deserves an F.

Foreshadowing in the form of simply name dropping an organization that will play a role in the series later does not constitute good storytelling. It's cool in the sense that it's a neat little thing that most people probably ignored on first viewing, but it certainly isn't something that will help an episodes grade, especially an episode as bad as Infection.
